Bolton V Millwall at Reebok Stadium - Match Preview

Pratley still missing

Darren Pratley will once again be missing when Bolton try to end their home woes against Millwall in the Sky Bet Championship.

The former Swansea midfielder is absent with back spasms as the Trotters bid to win their first home game of the season, at the eighth time of asking.

Their quest to do that has been boosted by midfielder Andre Moritz's return from illness while striker Craig Davies is available for selection after a hamstring strain.

Goalkeeper Adam Bogdan (knee) remains sidelined as do the trio of knee-injury victims Joe Riley, Mark Davies and Stuart Holden, along with full-back Marc Tierney (broken foot).

Millwall could add Justin Hoyte, Mark Beevers and Jimmy Abdou to their squad.

Hoyte is in line for his debut after joining on loan from Middlesbrough this week, fellow defender Beevers is fit after six weeks out with a knee injury and midfielder Abdou returns from suspension.

Abdou is likely to step into the centre in place of Shaun Derry, who left the club on Friday to become the new manager of Notts County.

The Lions have also lost full-back Scott Malone for the next few weeks after he suffered a knee injury against Burnley last Saturday.
